Virat Kohli has been in magnificent touch off late and he has now scored his third Test ton on the tour to Australia. Kohli got to his century on Day Three of the third Test between India and Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Kohli walked in to play the third ball of the day and has since helped India get into a great position.

A feature of Kohli’s innings has been the way he has driven through the innings. He has been in good touch and has applied himself very well through the day. He did get a chance though as Shane Watson dropped one at first slip and then there was an altercation with Mitchell Johnson. But, this is a memorable hundred for Kohli.

Earlier, Australia had won the toss and had elected to bat first. Joe Burns is debuting for them. On the other hand, India brought in KL Rahul, who gets his Test cap. Mohammed Shami has replaced Varun Aaron. Australia are leading the series 2-0 after winning the first two Tests in Adelaide and Brisbane. Steven Smith’s 192 helped Australia score 530 in the first innings
